NBA lockout -- Players will not accept deal, will seek to disband, Billy Hunter says - ESPN I highly doubt we have a NBA season this year after this. It is so sickening that the players can't see how much damage this is doing to their league. They already are the biggest overpaid babies of any professional sport and losing this season is going to kill all the momentum they gained from an exciting playoffs that got some of the NBA fans back in the fold. The players that are really getting hurt are the guys that make the minimum and are fighting to make a roster most years. Guys like Kobe and LeBron make more money in endorsements than they do playing the game but the lesser players that don't get the lucrative endorsements are the ones getting screwed over by their overpaid peers right now.
